Re: St Eval & St Merryn

Looks good. Where are the Nissen huts from? I guess the one on the left is Hornby Skaledale but what about the other two? It's taken a year but I can answer Skyblue's question as I was at the Farnham show today and http://www.gramodels.co.u k were there. It's model number 760 (£19.95) and I cut it ...

Re: The Great Electric Train Crush

I used to do a show at Gaydon when I had my rc plane company, it was always squeezed in and a nightmare. Routeways that you couldn't get two people past. Certainly not safety minded in the event of a fire.

Re: My New Layout

Your attention to detail and a bravery with new loco's is superb - mine tend to sit for a few weeks as I (a) save the cash for a sound chip and (b) pluck up the bravery to dismantle a model!

Re: Kernow O2... Have you got yours?

Re: More eBay nonsense...........

Loads of parts are shared. For example, the front sub frame on my car is pure Vectra, then Saab decided it wasn't strong enough and added another foot or so of crumple zone in front of the Vauxhall stuff - then because my car has a Saab engine (2.3T), this gave space for the intercooler etc. But the...

Re: More eBay nonsense...........

Same could be argued about toy trains but you only have to have one person disagree with another and all hell breaks out. I love the fact that people think my car is a Vauxhall but that the parts aren't made any more because Saab went bust - oddly those people can't see why that amuses me! Regardles...

Re: Kernow O2... Have you got yours?

Just had a chat with them, because I had ordered it with the gates stock it came through as Interlink but in fact it was first class, so probably arrive tomorrow... Trouble is every time I say, "no more loco's", they bring something else out... Z class tank is on order, and now I "nee...

Re: More eBay nonsense...........

I agree Vigo, I drive a Saab 9-5 Aero estate which is apparently a Vauxhall Cavalier... I can confirm that that the head light switch is from a Vauxhall.

Ignorance is bliss.

Re: Kernow O2... Have you got yours?

Good point, I've amended the title, thanks

Though I expect you'll be waiting a bit longer for Heljan's version!

Anyway, I've emailed Kernow about the (lack of) interlink next day delivery

Re: Come on everybody

I tried to take part in the first one but what with new baby, work and the bizarre coincidence that whenever I find an hour to do some tinkering, my fire pager goes off, ruining any chance. SO I stopped signing up to them because it would end with a monthly "sorry, I'm not going to complete thi...
